Film Journey was founded in 2003 by Doug Cummings to review repertory, indie, and world cinema screenings in Los Angeles and abroad. In 2010, Film Comment named Film Journey a “Top Film Criticism Site.”
Doug also co-founded Robert-Bresson.com and Masters of Cinema (now a premium DVD label in the UK). His writing has appeared in DVD liner notes, film festival catalogs, books, magazines, and newspapers; he is a regular contributor to the LA Weekly.
In 2009, he helped form the successful grassroots movement Save Film at LACMA. He has appeared on stage at numerous events in Los Angeles and led a year of film discussions at Echo Park Film Center. He has also worked as an editor for UCLA Film & Television Archive, and a programmer/editor for American Film Institute.
Doug is currently a graduate student in the Cinema and Media Studies program at the University of Southern California, where he’s a Teaching Assistant for world cinema and an Associate Programmer for the School of Cinematic Arts’ Thursday night alumni screenings.
